We are so excited to introduce to you our newest curriculum in The Peaceful Press family. One of the underlying principles for the new curriculum, The Playful Pioneers can be summed up in this quote by Charlotte Mason,
“The question is not, -- how much does the youth know? when he has finished his education -- but how much does he care? and about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? and, therefore, how full is the life he has before him?”
― Charlotte M. Mason, School Education: Developing A Curriculum
The Playful Pioneers aims to give your children a large room to start their education in. Through reading the beloved children's series, The Little House on the Prairie, and doing related art, science and history projects, your child will develop a love for learning. You and your young children will study famous works of art, copy poetry, learn new handwork skills, and best of all, develop deeper relationships as a family, as you explore new activities together.
The curriculum includes basic letter tracing sheets for beginning writers, as well as gradually more complex copy work sheets so that you can use the curriculum with a variety of early elementary ages and stages.
For each of the 30 weeks of the curriculum, you will have a handy grid so that you can see what activities you will be doing that week. There is also a daily details section with more specific directions.
Included in your curriculum bundle are instructions for parents, maps, artwork, poetry, recipes, and much more. The curriculum is created to build stronger family relationships as you and your young children explore literature and project based learning together, while you study famous people and events of pioneer history.
